The Summer Undergraduate Research Programme 2016

The School of Biomedical Sciences (SBS) participated in the Summer Undergraduate Research Programme (SURP) 2016 organized by the Office of Academic Links (OAL), The Chinese University of Hong Kong, from 6 June 2016 to 12 August 2016.  The programme itself is an institutional initiative aiming to encourage international undergraduate students to develop their research skills through undertaking a short-term research attachment at CUHK during the summer.

The ten international students who were supervised by SBS faculty members in this year's programme are listed below:
